The Impact of Emerging Technology in K-12 Education

Why I chose this area of science

Key Trends

Accelerating
Technology Adoption

Increasing use of blended


learning
Short-term impact trend:
Allow students to learn at their own pace
Supports teachers collaborate
Achievement levels rise ELA/ Math

Relevance
Places the learner at the center.
FOCUS: Engages students/ effective learning
FACT: Promotes achievements in reading and
writing.
Especially for disadvantaged students.

Impact on the practice


Using blended learning allows learners to:
Apply what they have learned.
Receive support from their peers and teacher
Understand collaboration

collaborative learning
approaches
Mid-term Impact trends: online collaborative
learning communities.
Peer to peer
Peer to teacher
Across the disciplines( I.e. math and science/ arts)

Trends
E-books: 60% US schools utilize them.
Use of Google classroom mobile app.
Teachers now collaborating with schools around
the globe.

Implications for the practice


Teachers need learning communities.
Ability to articulate technology as a key mode of
learning:
Teacher LEARNINGS FACILITATOR

Rethinking how schools work


Technology and blended learning take center
stage.
Teachers need to redesign curriculum.
Collaboration: Necessity to re-design curriculum
with colleagues and support students through
PLCs.

Relevance-long term
Students retain more information when they are
learning in a collaborative setting.
They own their learning.
They communicate to solve a problem.

Relevance
Edutopia:
These are the three learning structures that are
crucial and supported in a non-traditional setting for
todays successful 21st century learner.
Critical thinking
Collaboration: intra/ inter/ intra
Knowledge retention

Why I chose this area of science

Significant Challenges
Impeding
Technology Adoption

Integrating
Technology in
Teacher Education
Inadequate training in credential
programs
Inservice trainings focus on the device
Too few technology support staff
Teachers attitudes toward incorporating technology

Implications for Practice


ConnectEd
Universities are recognizing the need
TEACH-NOW: Online teacher preparation program.
technology, collaboration, application and
classroom experience

Relevance
Digital literacy is a key skill needed
Not yet the norm in education
It is not about tools, but a way of thinking
Students need digital literacy competence
Teachers are the link

Rethinking Roles of Teachers


Overview:

Teachers increasingly expected to:


Include technology
Be guides and mentors
Organize personal work
NOT be lecturers
Be effective facilitators
Be problem solvers
New trend - students access learning
opportunities beyond school day

Rethinking Roles of Teachers


Implications:
Government research and policies - finding solutions
Programs/funding for educational resources and technology
Additional teacher support and educational trainings/resources
NEED visionary leadership to reimagine instructional approaches
Hybrid learning classrooms structures underway

Rethinking
Roles
of
Teachers
Relevance:
Teachers CURRENTLY feeling shift
Leadership needs to be:
In-tune with teachers and shift
Problem solve with stakeholders

Demonstrates importance of PLCs and collaboration


Students need direction:
Positive digital citizenship
Converting information into intelligence

Teaching Complex Thinking

Overview:

Young people need to:


Understand the networked world
Learn to tackle complex tasks and problems
Coding classes and programs
Design websites
Develop educational games and apps
Design solutions by modeling and prototyping new products
Key skill = students make complex ideas understandable through various
medias

Teaching Complex Thinking


Implications:
Developing initiatives for complex & computational thinking
Countries without plan will need new standards - precursors to
policies
National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking (NCECT)
created
Leaders in this field are creating websites and online portals

Teaching Complex Thinking


Relevance:
Countries need to assess their standards
for complex thinking
If standards exist, policies needed
If no standards exist, new policies
needed
Can affect:
Standards, programs, funding,
teacher training, lesson planning,
student expectations, etc.

Important Developments
in
Educational Technology

Makerspaces
Community-oriented workshops
to share, explore and create
Technological and analog tools available
DIY - construct tangible products
Startup accelerators for the community

Implications for
Makerspaces
in Education
Engages learners in a creative way
High-order problem solving
Hands-on learning in design and construction
Encourage students and teachers to act on their
ideas
Explore design from start to finish
Skillsets learned have real world value

Relevance of Using
Makerspaces in Education
Inspire confidence in students
Learn entrepreneurial skills
Prepare students to enter a rapidly advancing
workforce
Empower students to change communities
Skills applied to solving local problems

Adaptive Learning
Technologies
A movement to customize learning
Software adapts to the learner
Best in online learning or hybrid environments
Behavioral data collected
Goal is efficient intervention and retention of info

Implications
Educators learning curve
Shift in lessons-reverse classrooms

Relevance
Research and pilot programs
Government mandates drive the development
China...perception this will manage large classes
Gaming format
College classes

Digital Badges
Microcredits
Gold Stars and Boy Scouts
National Movement, Badge Alliance
Chicago city-wide
University credit
